You even italicised the words "so in the original post". Are you trying to change your own words?
If you had taken the time to compare the two, you might have noticed that I did say it in the second post, which I consider to be the original post since the first one is meaningless at this stage. It's not that hard to figure out.
(unable to remember prices, shop name, manual included or not, etc)
Uh... where did I say I can't remember the store's name and whether or not a manual was included? I simply refused to waste time answering your arbitrary questions.
Furthermore, you've often accused others of trying to change the topic, so I am merely taking a point from you. So it is OK for you to change the topic but not others? I see your sense of fair play must be like the AI on unfair..
Where was I changing the topic?
Yes it is. You must have forgotted to read the manual. Again, Impulse - manual - RTFM. Did you even read the manual? Oh wait, I just remembered, smart chap like you with excellent memory doesn't think that asking about the manual is a pertinent question.
The account does not come with the game. You have to download Impulse and create the account.
First, you say a shop is innocent because how can a shop staff possibly know about such policies, then you say that it is ridiculous to think that a game company is responsible for teaching shop employees their software's registration/update/etc procedures. So, if it is not the shop employees, and it is not the software developer, then it is what, the customer's fault? Which is it? You are arguing both/multiple sides of the coin here.
I don't understand how you could possibly think that the publisher should contact every individual shop in the entire world that's selling SoaSE
and tell them about the game's DRM. I have never said they should do this and the whole idea is batshit fucking insane. What I did
say was that at the very least there should be a clear warning in the game's packaging.
And incidentally, yeah, maybe SD might talk to the small shop on the other side of the world who have already pulled their second hand copies of Sins off the shelf - who knows. Do you work for SD and so you know for sure what they can/will/cannot/won't do? Or are you too chicken to find out the truth?
Maybe I just used my powers of common sense to determine that maybe Stardock isn't going to contact a tiny game store on the other side of the planet to provide them with information they already have about a product they are no longer selling second hand.
Question is - do you dare to find out?
I really have to wonder if you have some kind of mental disorder. To say that you're blowing things out of proportion in a melodramatic fashion would be an understatement of the highest order.
As for remembering how much it cost - why do I keep asking that question? I want to know if you really bought it second hand or if you downloaded it off a torrent site.
If I had torrented it, what would it prove if I lied about the price and told you that I paid X euros? But of course I didn't torrent it, because if I had then I wouldn't be making this thread (use some of that common sense, please).
You level accusations at others, but don't dare to bring out your own proofs when challenged.
I don't see how I could possibly prove
how much I paid for it, even if I could remember the price.
I think you are really a troll. A pretty good one, I will admit, but a troll nonetheless. Proof:
1. You will not take concrete action to resolve an issue even when the action has been suggested to you (numerous times). It's like saying the game doesn't work, and then being told to update your video drivers, but instead of doing so (updating the video drivers), continuing to complain that the game doesn't work.
There are no actions to be taken since I already returned the game, got a refund and have no plans of buying a new copy or having anything else to do with the game. I have explained this numerous times.
2. You keep changing your points - example 1: first you accuse others of changing the topic, then you say it is unfair for others to limit the topic
Suddenly changing the subject is not the same thing as attempting to impose arbitrary restrictions on the entire discussion, like limiting it strictly to what was said in the original post.
3. You accuse others (SD/IC) of various things (greed) but when asked for your proof, you do not deliver
What? I've clearly explained many, many times why they're guilty of greed.
You ask others to prove it when they accuse you of trolling, but when others ask your for proof that you really bought a copy second hand (like price), you decline to answer.
It is impossible for me to provide proof that I bought a second hand copy of the game. It is equally impossible for someone to prove that I'm trolling, since I'm not
trolling (not that you even appear to understand what trolling means). By the way, the reason why you're trying to argue or prove that I torrented the game is because you have no real counter-arguments against my position or the facts that I've presented here. You're getting desperate.
OK, let's say you win, SD/IC is a greedy bunch of immoral corporate b***s that just screw everyone over their truly dictatorial policies. OK. So epiclulz, what now? Ball's in your court. Are you just talk, or what?
Have I at some point asserted that I'm going to do something about this?
